8 String Guitar Scales and Arpeggios

8 string guitar scales and arpeggios

Due to the rise in popularity of 8 string guitar, as well as the added complexity of learning scales, chords and arpeggios on the instrument, we’ve come up with a novel system for learning scales and arpeggios on 8-string guitar using the minimum amount of scale patterns possible, so that you can get straight to the good stuff: making music.

I’d like to show the most efficient and least time-consuming way to learn scales and arpeggios on an 8 string guitar in standard tuning (F#, B, E, A, D, G, B, E), which will both up your game technically and allow you, through consistent practice, to quickly gain a working knowledge of the most useful scales and arpeggios in music.

In this book, we cover the major scale and its modes, pentatonic scales, the most common seventh arpeggios and a selection of exotic scales to broaden your tonal palette.
